Office 365 University

Best value for higher education students and faculty who want Office on up to 2 PCS, Windows 8 tablets, iPads, and Macs, and up to 2 select mobile devices- including iPhones, and Android phones (Office Mobile is already available on Windows Phones and does not count toward the 2–device limit). .1 Proof of eligibility is required online before use.

Office 365 University has all the Microsoft applications, plus cloud services. Just sign in and you can get to your Office files, applications, and settings when you are not at home.

Available as a subscription, Office 365 University comes with one time upfront fee for a four year service. Microsoft and your Office 365 retailer will let you know when it’s time to renew.

What’s new in this release of Office?

The 2013 versions of familiar Office applications such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint include new features that help you create, communicate and work efficiently from virtually anywhere. In addition to updating the traditional Office suites, Microsoft has developed brand new subscription versions of Office, specifically designed around the way customers use Office. Each new subscription offer will include the 2013 versions of the Office applications, for example Word, Excel and PowerPoint, plus cloud services such as Skype world minutes and online storage with SkyDrive.

Subscribers will also receive future rights to version upgrades as well as per-use rights across multiple PCs or Macs and select mobile devices.1 Note: The Office applications you can use across PCs, Macs and other devices vary by platform.

What is the difference between the Office 2013 suites and Office 365 plans?

Microsoft Office is still the name Microsoft uses for its familiar productivity software. Office suites have traditionally included applications such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook. All Office 2013 suites include the latest versions of the applications, for use on a single PC.

Microsoft uses the name “Office 365” for products that include cloud services, such as additional SkyDrive online storage, Skype minutes for home use, Lync web conferencing or Exchange Online hosted email for businesses. Cloud services are features that are enabled over the Internet. Most Office 365 plans also include the full-featured Office 2013 applications, which users can install across multiple computers and devices. All Office 365 products, such as Office 365 Home Premium, are paid for on a subscription basis, annually. Active subscribers will receive future rights to version upgrades as a benefit of their subscription. Entitlements vary by product.

What it includes:

  • Install on up to 2 PCS, Windows 8 tablets, iPads, Macs and select mobile devices including iPhone.1
  • The latest versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote2, Publisher2, and Access.2
  • An extra 1 TB of online storage in OneDrive.3
  • 60 minutes of Skype calls to phones in 40+ countries every month.4
  • Full, streamable versions of Office on any PC with Office on Demand.5
  • Convenient four year subscription with automatic upgrades included so you're always up to date with the latest features and services.

This is a great product - but reading some of the 1* and 2* reviews - I think people aren't quite understanding how this product works. For my review, i'm going to quickly explain how to get this product activated (because it even confused me for a second and I work in IT!) then review the product.

Once you've purchased the software, you'll need to go to your email account, open the Microsoft email and click a link to validate your software via the Microsoft website. It was as simple as clicking the link and entering my University email address. Once you've done this, it'll tell you that you're validated. From here, go back to your Amazon account and refresh the page. You should now see your product key. Type in the product key on the Microsoft site and you'll be able to download your software. It's quite easy really.

You'll have to activate your Skype minutes separately! Go to your OneDrive account, sign in with your Microsoft Account (Email address) and look in the bottom left for the 'Get More Storage' button. Click that and you'll see there's a 'View' button, which will let you view your Office 365 subscription. This will take you to another page where you need to click a link to sign into Skype online and activate your minutes.

Back to the review: Office 365 is all about the "cloud". Heard of OneDrive? OneDrive is Microsoft's "Cloud". The cloud is essentially a server which allocates space to YOU, the customer. It's worth noting that this product comes with an absolutely massive 1TB worth of storage (that's enough for 10,000,000 word docs, if they were 100kb each).

Anyway, you can store your documents and files on the cloud (OneDrive) and access them from your other devices e.g Mac, phone or tablet.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great value, but beware! 29 Sept. 2013
By Josh
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Download| Edition:University|Verified Purchase
--- Update 17/01/2014 ---
I just wanted to provide a quick update on the product.
The stability of Office seems to have improved since I've gotten it. During the first couple of months, I had nothing but problems with it, but now, even though there are still the occasional problems with crashing, it has improved dramatically.

The last time I checked my account online, I noticed that microsoft has reduced the amount of mobile activations, which is now 2, instead of 5. However, this isn't really an issue. What IS an issue though is that these mobile apps do NOT work on Android tablets. If you have a tablet, you will not be able to download and use the app, which has been confirmed by Microsoft themselves, who if I recall correctly, said that anyone using a tablet should use the Office Web Apps. I think these were responses microsoft made on google play store reviews that brought this up, although I can't say for sure...

I guessing that based on some of the recent reviews, e-mail activation is now working as normal. Of course, I can't confirm it, but either way, I would personally recommend using an NUS extra card for activation, although if you don't have one, it may be a better idea to try email first, and THEN NUS/ISIC if that fails.

--- Original ---
For the price that this is currently being offered at, this is a steal. The Office 365 University suite not only offers more applications than the basic Home & Student Office suite, but is also a hell of a lot cheaper than getting Office 365 Home & Student.

One of my biggest issues with Office is the bugs that it seems to have.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish service from Amazon. 6 Oct. 2014
By conrad
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Download| Edition:University|Verified Purchase
I don't know what Office 365 is like because I still can't use it. I bought it on Friday, now it's Monday and Microsoft have said it is going to take 3-5 working days to confirm student status so that I can download it. The whole point of buying software by download is that it's quicker. If you buy directly from Microsoft they don't allow you to purchase the student version unless you can verify your student status up front. You buy from Amazon and they happily take your money without giving any indication how difficult it is actually going to be to verify. I have spent most of the day on the phone to Microsoft and Amazon trying to sort this out. The really funny this is that when I tried to give up and return the product, Amazon glibly said, "This product is not eligible for returns." I have never had such a rubbish experience with Amazon.

After purchasing this product, a downloadable installer will need to be obtained from the Microsoft website. Unfortunately this installer came up with "perfboost.exe" errors and ended up installing the software incorrectly - all office apps refused to start. Multiple reinstall attempts led to similar results.

After telephone support sessions with Microsoft totalling nearly four hours and many trouble shooting checks by MS and myself, the software still failed to install correctly. In the end MS support suggested reinstalling the entire operating system. Given I was using a brand new PC I had just set up with loads of other programs and files this was a massive inconvenience.

However, after a fresh install of Windows, Windows updates and nothing else, the office installer worked and continues to work after installing the rest of my programs and files. The office applications are fine (similar to office 2010 in most respects) and with a bit of tinkering it doesn't have to be all on the cloud and signed in to you MS account if you don't need it. MS support was really helpful and did the best they could to help but unfortunately the root cause of the installer errors was never found. Office should install fine on the majority of devices out there but be prepared to reinstall Windows if the installer goes south.
